Observation 11595: Agaricales sensu lato

When: 2008-09-25

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Notes:
These LBMs were all over a fallen pine. At first I thought they might be tiny shelflike creps or similarly, but with a little fiddling I got a good up-from-beneath photo that showed that the things had stems. They looked quite nifty growing like a miniature forest from a cliffside of rotting wood.

Among them I found two little red cup fungi (obs. 11594) and the little round brown things might be associated with either fungus, or some third species, for all I can tell.

Update: On Sept. 29 I returned to these and found that they’d doubled in cap width. The first seven photos are from the 25th and the next six are from the 29th. There are more shots from beneath, as well as from above. More of the cup fungi were apparent as well. I think more of them grew, as well as my noticing more that had been there on the 25th.

Looks very young in close-up, but Fuzzy Foot, as it is known, is a winter mushroom and could be fruiting in your area at this time. It is often reddish when mature, but should have a black or nearly black stem.
